Bush to lay low during Democratic convention, but keep heat on Kerry
<President Bush plans to lie low during next week's Democratic National Convention, but his re-election campaign will send a "thorn-in-their-side" contingent to react to Bush-bashing, and Vice President Dick Cheney will keep up the attacks on John Kerry during a West Coast swing.

Bush's campaign, however, will send about a dozen people to Boston to rapidly respond to Democratic critics -- a "thorn-in-their-side" delegation, as one Bush adviser put it.

"We'll have a strong presence in Boston to respond to all of the charges and the negativity and pessimism that comes out of John Kerry's and John Edwards' campaign," campaign spokesman Scott Stanzel said.

Just outside the Democrats' convention, the Republican National Committee will set up shop to do the same, though party and campaign officials were vague Monday about whether they will combine their efforts. >
